Seattle Seahawks Inside Slant 2009-05-15
Count receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh among the growing list of folks who believe the Seattle Seahawks will rebound from a disappointing 4-12 season a year ago and compete for a playoff spot in 2009.


The recent free-agent addition said his new team is going to surprise some league observers come September.

"We're going to be good," Houshmandzadeh said, while talking to a Seattle-area radio station. "Real good. (If) everybody stays healthy, oh, man. We're going to be something special. The talent we have on this team and then coach (Jim) Mora brings everything together just right. Cool dude.

"Not because I just got there, but everything I've seen from Jim Mora has showed me that we're going to be really good just the way he relates to the players."

Houshmandzadeh went on to say he believes the team has received extra motivation, with no nationally televised games scheduled for the 2009 season. Houshmandzadeh said he doesn't want national TV stations to put Seattle on late in the year when they realize the Seahawks are a good team.

"I can't wait to smack some people in the face," Houshmandzadeh said. "They didn't put us on TV so when we start running through everybody like a wet paper bag, don't flex us in late in the season when we're the best.

"Don't flex us in, we'll have our coming-out party in the playoffs."

So far, Houshmandzadeh has lived up to the expectations placed upon him to be Seattle's No. 1 receiver when he signed a four-year, $40 million deal with the team. The former Cincinnati Bengal receiver has developed a good, working relationship with veteran quarterback Matt Hasselbeck as they get ready for the beginning of training camp at the end of July.

"They're two veterans and they're both very smart players," Mora said. "They know the game, and they've just got to get a feel for each other. And really that's what the next couple months are for.

"If they can go into training camp in kind of the mode of, 'Let's refine things and hone things,' that would be perfect for us. And I know T.J. is committed to being here during the offseason, and Matt (Hasselbeck is) always here. So I think that will give them a chance to really work together and continue to jell."
